Yoel Romero has absolutely lit the UFC world on fire since his first fight.
Going 13-1 since joining the UFC, the Olympic silver medalist doesn’t appear to be too nervous about his first title fight at UFC 213 on Saturday.
In an interview with the Brazilian news outlet Combate on Tuesday, Romero seemed as relaxed as could be.
When one of the members of the press started to play some music, the Brazilian fighter took the opportunity to show off some of his dance steps. If it doesn’t work out for him in the Octagon, he might have a future on the dance floor.
He’ll be all business on Saturday, though. His opponent, Robert Whittaker, is 9-2 in the UFC and is looking to take home the interim title belt himself. Dana White has confirmed that the winner of this fight will have a shot at undisputed title holder Michael Bisping.
There is a lot on the line for both fighters, but you’d never guess it based on Romero’s mid-week demeanor. Maybe this is how he gets geared up for the biggest fight of his UFC career. Only time will tell.
